Profile

Justin

  • Age: 39
  • Hometown: Bronx, N.Y.
  • Connection to your teammate: Fiancé
  • Current occupation: Morning radio personality
  • Describe what you do: I help people start their day with a smile. Also, I create and deliver four hours of content on the radio & online each morning and record and edit audio/video for web content.
  • 3 words to describe you: Passionate, loyal and straight-forward.
  • Favorite hobbies: Photography/videography, video games, travel and learning new skills/talents.
  • What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Besides proposing to Diana with her own Amazing Race (the video went viral), I'm proud of all of the lives I have been able to change through my job.
  • What famous person reminds you of yourself? Bruce Willis - a really down to earth guy who tells it like it is, a tough guy with a soft heart.
  • What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Eliza Dushku- can hang out with the guys, has an amazing heart and infectious smile.
  • What scares you most about traveling? The lack of a second language and knowledge of some customs.
  • What excites you most about traveling? The different cultures, seeing the beauty of mother nature, sense of accomplishment, growing as a person and seeing the world through Diana's eyes.
  • Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Diana likes to finish my thoughts for me and then have a retort ready for points I was never trying to make. We both need to listen and hear what the other is actually trying to say.
  • Pet peeve about your teammate: She doesn't answer direct questions with direct answers.
  • What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Bora Bora; it looks like paradise. Alaska; one of the last frontiers. The UK; to visit the castles and history.
  • What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Travel the world, experience different cultures with the most beautiful person in the world. I want to add an unbelievable chapter to our "book of life" which is one step closer to happily ever after. I want to show her how strong and smart she really is. I love watching her grow as a person.

Diana

  • Age: 30
  • Hometown: Sharon Hill, Pa.
  • Connection to your teammate: Fiancée
  • Current occupation: 6th grade teacher
  • Describe what you do: I create lessons that teach reading skills to 6th graders, and then use those lessons to teach students how to read and understand various types of writing.
  • 3 words to describe you: Go-getter, sensitive and passionate.
  • Favorite hobbies: Arts and crafts, reading and exploring new places.
  • What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? I am most proud of my teaching career. I have wanted to teach since I was 5 years old. Teaching for me is not just "what I do"...it's part of who I am. Watching my students learn and develop throughout the school year is extremely rewarding!
  • What famous person reminds you of yourself? Zooey Deschanel. She isn't afraid to be herself, she's super goofy and can hang out with anyone.
  • What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Vin Diesel. He has a tough exterior, but a soft heart.
  • What scares you most about traveling? The unknown! Unfamiliar places, language barriers, different customs and laws can be very scary and intimidating.
  • What excites you most about traveling? The unknown! It's exciting to explore new sights, meet new people, experience new cultures and see the beauty of new places.

  • Pet peeve about your teammate: Justin always needs to be right.
  • What country and place would you most like to visit and why? I would most like to visit Italy and the UK because my grandparents are from there. I am interested to see where my family roots started and where my grandparents grew up.
  • What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? I would love to travel around the world and experience the different cultures that I read and learn about. I hope to come home with a deeper appreciation of the diversity in the world.
